Senior QA Engineer (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – February 12, 2016
This was an insane place to work if you're a QA engineer. They 'fix forward' meaning the developers push to production multiple times a day without any QA of their work. They break the websites daily, but apparently that's ok with them. Very strange place.
Free lunches. Good pay
No processes. It's the worst of the wild, wild west
Accountant (Current Employee) – Century City, CA – July 8, 2015
The company is known for its out of control turnover. Many people stick around for less than a year mainly because they are highly educated and have the professional experience to seek better opportunities. It doesn't take too long to learn that there's a culture of throwing people under the bus and constant scapegoating. Restructuring is currently underway and will only make things worse for current employees.

Still growing to meet and understanding the benefits of technology in their overall business strategies for success. Lots of talented employees all striving to produce and assist Westfield as they continue their transformation.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Wheaton – October 24, 2014
Since I was the Administrative Assistant, my typical day consisted of walking the Mall (3) three times a day to check on tenants to be sure they were in compliance with rules and regulations as far as opening/closing, attire, etc... I was responsible for putting together leases, taking rent payments, sending out letters etc. As much as I like the mall, it was not my dream job. Although I enjoyed the people I worked with, I was not crazy about dealing with irrate tenants when they didn't follow rules and regulations and you had to confront them. I did however enjoy the holidays because it was always so cheery and I was in charge of dressing the empty Kiosk Carts.
Fun place to work. High ideals shared by everyone. High productivitay
Regional Director of Design (Former Employee) – Los Angeles – September 12, 2012
Meet colleagues by phone, talk conceptually. Discuss deliverables and deadlines. Meet with senior mngmt re progress of individual projects. What I learned: squeekiest gear gets greased. Be assertive of your needs and you will accomplish much. Identify key players and be on their radar. Management has it's own needs. Meet them. Word hard, but also play hard. Coworkers are great at what they do. Very motivated. Very talented. Some could be insecure because of titles. Manage their insecurities for your own good. Goals are moving targets. There are never a shortage of expectations to accomplished. Seek that goal that you can accomplish, do as best a job you can, inspire excellence with coworkers and colleagues, go home and get you rest, reward and sleep. Travel and meeting people are the most enjoyable part. Taking ownership of projects is its own reward.
great pay. free lunches. good company.
gruelling schedules. vaguely defined goals. shortage of talent.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Westfield Corporation. I feel that my talents and services were appreciated and ackowledged.
